Have you ever wished God would pick up the telephone and tell you where and what you should do?
Recently, I had several conversations with people stating they wished they knew what direction God wanted them to take.
God talks to us all the time. But I realized we don’t always hear Him or recognize His voice.
So I reviewed the times I’ve heard God’s direct presence and voice guiding me during a trying time.
1. awareness-We have to first be aware that something is missing before we can begin the steps to change it. Do you read your Bible daily or at least three times a week? Do you spend time in prayer/talking with God throughout your day? Do you think about how your actions would make God feel? Do this the next few days and see where you land.
2. silence- We are so filled with noise. The chatter of television, radio, our cell phones, I-pads/phones. It’s a wonder we can even hear ourselves think, let alone God’s voice. Go for a walk or turn off everything in your house and look out the window at nature.
3. prayer- Ask God to fill you with His Holy Spirit, that He would lift the blinders from your eyes and ears so that you may hear Him speak to you. Pray for the Holy Spirit to overflow in your life so that there is no mistaking God’s presence for anything else.
Have you ever felt God speak to you or that He revealed something to you?
